AUSTIN (KJCE) -- A man is dead after being struck and killed by a MetroRail train late Friday night.

Police say the crash happened just before midnight near Airport Boulevard and East 51st Street.

Cap Metro says the pedestrian was crossing the tracks and was not at a rail crossing.

Passengers on the MetroRail train were moved to buses and taken to stations; the "bus bridge" continued for the remainder of Friday's late night service.

The agency says MetroRail will operate normally Saturday morning.
